Johari finishes last in race for Sungai Petani PKR chief
PKR POLLS | Three-term Sungai Petani MP Johari Abdul has reportedly come in last in the race to become the constituency’s PKR division chief. According to unofficial results, incumbent Sungai Petani PKR chief Robert Ling retained his position with 525 votes, while another challenger, Ragunathan, bagged 430 votes. Johari came in last with 410 votes. Johari, who is aligned to PKR deputy presidential candidate Rafizi Ramli, has struggled to deliver votes for his faction in Kedah. At the national level, Johari’s division voted overwhelmingly for incumbent deputy president Azmin Ali, who received 912 votes to Rafizi’s 441 votes. Yesterday, in the first half of voting in Kedah, Azmin won six out of 10 divisions with a total of 1,148 votes against Rafizi’s 1,031. Results for phase two of the Kedah elections are trickling in.

steadyaku47 comment : Above is a snapshot of what is now happening in PKR today – the systematic clear out of any individual who supports Azmin Ali.
Take Johari Abdul the PKR MP for Sungai Petani. He is aligned to Rafizi Ramli and Istana Segambut. In October PKR party polls last year, he came last with 410 votes after Robert Ling with 525 votes and Ragunathan with 430 votes. Yesterday Anwar Ibrahim appoints Johari Abdul as Chairman of the Kedah state leadership Council – effectively making him PKR’s chief in that state.
Anwar Ibrahim, using his powers as President of PKR, is stacking up every state with appointees who are beholden to Istana Segambut.
What about Rafizi Ramli and INVOKE?
For now Rafizi is playing footsie with KJ.
For now Rafizi Ramli is busy helping Anwar Ibrahim and Istana Segambut appoint the various PKR State Chairman who are their own men, not Azmin Ali.
For now Rafizi is using the resources of INVOKE (yes the same INVOKE that has had a massive inflow of public funds to make it what is today – a tool to assist Rafizi Ramli in his personal political agenda within PKR) to “guide” PKR covertly what he failed to do overtly – i.e get Azmin Ali ousted as Deputy to Anwar Ibrahim.
And soon….Rafizi Ramli will be appointed as a Senator in readiness for his entry into cabinet when Anwar Ibrahim becomes Prime Minister.
You guys need to understand this! Istana Segambut rules PKR. Istana Segambut will stack PKR with only those who will do their bidding. Rafizi Ramli and INVOKE is complicit in making PKR into what Anwar Ibrahim wants it to be : totally beholden to Istana Segambut. All this that Anwar and Istana Segamabut does within PKR is what they will also do when Anwar Ibrahim…if Anwar Ibrahim…becomes Prime Minister of our nation. Who else do you think, will work with Anwar Ibrahim? These Idiots? Huh!
